Nice to see you.



''They are not long, the days of wine and roses:
Out of a misty dream
Our path emerges for a while, then closes,
Within a dream.''

Best songs of 2012 #10 - Ayla

 



The Maccabees

Ayla






The Maccabees are from South London, England. The band's name was chosen at random from the Bible, though none of the members are religious. Their first single was released in 2005 though it wasn't until 2007 with the release of their debut album, did they really take off.

Ayla is taken from their third album, Given to the Wild, which was released in August, 2012. I love the clip was well, directed by the band.

Alya

 

Aimless am I
Listless I'm the blunt of the knife
Drifting to the corners of life
Ayla

I could make something right
Gentle with the kindness I'd like
So often it's a trick of the light
Ayla

And we wait for love
In the shape of us

Until the wait is over,
under halcyon skies
Until the wait is over,
for an innocent life

It's a weight off my mind
I could trust you, you could tell me it's fine
I could sew you a stitch and save nine
Ayla

None more admired
and out of soft focused desire
From honeyed milk to funeral pyre
Ayla

And we'll wait for love
In the shape of us
But the state of us
Daedalus

The wait is over,
under halcyon skies
The wait is over,
for an innocent life

The wait is over,
under halcyon skies
The wait is over,
for an innocent life

Until the wait is over
The wait is over
The wait is over
